WMC OFFICE MAKES READY FOR VETERANS To prepare for the speeded-up return of veterans after VJ-Day, War Manpower Commission officials in v this region are taking a special 15-week course at Fort Dodge. W. J. Becker, head of the War Manpower Commission in Algona, has completed eight weeks in the course on selective placement of handicapped veterans. Becker estimates that 75 percent of the veterans returning to the county report to the Algona office for job information. Last week alone, Becker says, 26 veterans were in. They return to find out where jobs are open for the skills they learned before en- tering'the service, for the training they received while in the army or navy or for combination of both. Ninfety-eight percent o! those who have applied at the combined WMC and United States Employment office have been placed. Biggest emphasis is oh the disabled veteran, Becker continues Servicemen are processed before civilian workers, and, if the local office can't service a returning veteran, he is sent to the Veterans Administration office in Fort Dodge. The local office staff, which has been cut down to conserve money and manpower, will have to be boosted again when the influx of returning veterans becomes heavy. Closing of the office on VJ-Day will conform to community plans unless it is announced on Saturday. In that case, the office will not be open at any time Saturday since it is regularly closed each Saturday 'afternoon. Awaits Return Cpl. Danil R. Hantelman, of Fenton, is awaiting return to the States for discharge under the army's point system. He has a total of 119 points, THURSDAY, AUGUST 16 .. a"'.-.
